Cate Blanchett and Colin Farrell won the Volpi Cup at the 79th Venice Film Festival as best female and male performers. The award ceremony was broadcast on the festival's YouTube channel.
The decision was announced by an international jury headed by American actress Julianne Moore.
Blanchett won the award for her role as orchestra conductor, the first woman to lead the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, in Tar by Todd Field. The music for Tar was composed by Hildur Gudnadottir, the first female composer to win an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award and a BAFTA Award for Best Original Soundtrack.
Farrell was paired with Brendan Gleeson in Martin McDonagh's The Banshees of Inisherin, for which he received a 13-minute standing ovation. The Banshees of Inisherin is scheduled to have its world premiere on Oct. 21. The story is about the conflict between two friends, which unfolds on a remote Irish island.
